Rural Hama, Syria 2017Zeina Halif, 23, is a nurse at the SARC Salemiyeh malnutrition clinic. “I like volunteer work, and I like children very much. I enjoy working with the doctor, and helping pregnant and lactating women. I love my job and feel happy when I can help people."The SARC malnutrition clinic in Salemiyeh has both a base in the town, and a mobile team of volunteers who go out to surrounding villages. The malnutrition clinic is one of 6 such SARC facilities, supported by the Canadian Red Cross, in response to the situation faced by displaced people and those living in hard-to-reach areas.

Zeina, 23, is a nurse at the Salamiyah malnutrition clinic. She has worked with Syrian Arab Red Crescent since 2014.

Rural Hama, Syria 2017Kholoud and Ghassan were displaced from their home in Syria two years ago. Kholoud has come this Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) clinic to get a check-up after having breast cancer, and Ghassan needs an operation. Kholoud has another son who suffered a brain injury. The family can receive free healthcare and medicines at this SARC facility.Before the crisis, Salemiyeh had a population of around 300,000. Now it’s home to almost double – around 500,000. Many displaced people have come to the town and surrounding rural areas. The Syrian Arab Red Crescent clinic in Salemiyeh, which is supported by IFRC, provides pediatrics, gynecology, dentistry, an internal disease clinic, and separate malnutrition centre. Around half the clinic’s patients are IDPs.

Ghassan, 5, and his mother Kholoud left their village in Rural Damascus in 2011 and heard that Salemiyeh, an area in Rural Hama was a good place to come to. They set up home with Ghassan’s dad and his older brother, aged 9.

Amid political turmoil that has been ravaging several countries in MENA in recent years, National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies have focused much of their efforts of providing relief and support to communities affected by conflicts.

National Societies have also made significant investment in strengthening the expertise of their volunteer teams to respond to a variety of crises. This form of development is an ongoing process for National Societies.

National Society activities also include:

– Disaster preparedness
– Resilience building
– Health and emergency medical services
– Psychosocial support

Learn more about the work of National Societies by visiting the news archive page.

IFRC MENA regional support

The IFRC’s Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region comprises of 17 National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, supported by regional, country and multi-country cluster offices.

In the MENA region, the IFRC focuses its efforts on enabling National Societies to better deliver their services to people in need in their countries, and where relevant, to facilitate their partnerships with other National Societies.

Technical assistance and guidance in key areas are provided by the regional team and country/multi-country cluster teams where appropriate. Experts in a broad range of relevant operational and development areas work with National Societies to strengthen their work.
